Randomness around my home....

This is Blackbird Designs, "My Gift to You"...stitched and hung on my "Antique" wall going down to the family room. It was a fun stitch, and I like the frame I found for it.

The above is a memory box I did in honour of my mom. I found some neat things when I had to go through her possessions....My mom was born in 1920, so alot of these things are super, super old. I have a school photo....a report card from when she was in grade 4, a "BirthdayBook" presented to her when she was 14, and most precious of all, an Autograph Book that belonged to her older sister, and mom wrote in it, and signed it when she was 7!! Also, all her sisters and brothers and mom signed it!! I just love that!!

The above are beautiful barn photos taken by a friend of mine...he was nice enough to send me them and I printed them off and framed them for my kitchen!!

This is a Bellpull that I did a few months ago, I incorporated my children's initials into it. It's hard to see here, but it looks really nice on the wall, or so I think! LOL
Have a great day everyone!!

Lovely photos around the house. I have a barn photo that I just love but have not got around to framing it. I can't find the old house photo I want to go with it.
How has your weather been. My parents are in Parrsboro for the summer and they said the weather has been lousy.
